We just returned from our first stay at Congress Hall. We have been to Cape May almost every year for the past 30 years and this by far has been our favorite place to stay! We stayed with our two very young children and could not have been more pleased with the service and acco

Great place to spend the weekend. Right on the ocean. Room was clean and comfortable. Plenty of places to shop and eat right inside Congress Hall. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to visit Cape May.

We love this hotel and have always had a great experience: nothing beats the vibe of the Brown Room on a Saturday night with Darrin at the piano. And at Christmas time this place is extra special.
Our only complaint was that for this stay our room was right above the main door to

My 9 year old and I stayed at Congress Hall during the Winter Wonderland last season and it was amazing! We both loved it. The hotel is so beautifully decorated and the lobby area is so warm and cozy with a fireplace and Christmas tree. We were happy just sitting there with a del

Does anyone know when the outdoor pool closes for the season?
Hi, I don't believe they have an actual "date." From what I know, they close it based on the weather (it will stay open if the weather is basically warm). I have been there in the middle of September and it was still open. If you really have to have a definite answer, I would make a quick call to them to confirm. Good luck.

"Congress Hall Suites have more street and traffic noise than ocean-facing rooms in the main hotel."
"For the money, go for the Ocean View and lower floors"
"I would choose an ocean-view room if available. It really is an amazing view of the water and area."
"Demand something quiet and far from the ballroom"
"We like the efficiency at the STar Inn but would recommend any of the Cape Resort hotels."
